The Israeli-Palestinian conflict explained


One of our favorite speakers, Dr. Christopher Wright, Professor of Middle East History and Islamic Studies at The Citadel, returns on June 7th.  He will be speaking on the origins of the Palestinian – Israeli Conflict.

Wright’s talk will cover the origins of Zionism and the motivations for the creation of the State of Israel; the Jewish settlement of Palestine and Palestinian reactions to Zionism; the British Mandate of Palestine after WWI and why they turned the issue over to the United Nations; the creation of the State of Israel, the dispersal of the Palestinian population, and the impact of these events on the ongoing conflict.
